Did you know that approximately 35% of your energy is used to keep your electrolytes in balance? Read on to see if our CHF #97 may be helpful to you.
The human body is an “electrical machine”. All vital bodily functions happen as a result of electrical signals being sent between the various parts of your body and your brain. In order for your body to operate at its peak performance, these electrical signals must be conducted in an efficient manner – this is where electrolytes come in. Electrolytes are substances that will conduct electricity when dissolved in water. The most common electrolyte in your body is salt. Your body is approximately 70% water. About two thirds of the water resides inside your cells (intracellular fluid). One third of the water is outside the cells (extracellular fluid). Your body works constantly to balance the concentrations between the intracellular fluid electrolytes and the extracellular fluid electrolytes. This is an integral component of homeostasis, or your body’s inner balance.
The mechanisms that monitor and adjust your body’s electrolyte balance respond to changes only in the extracellular fluids such as the blood. When someone is ill or injured and taken to the hospital, one of the first and most common procedures is to administer an IV of salt water into the blood stream. This is done so the body is able to operate more efficiently due to better electrical signal conductivity between the body and the brain. The addition of the salt also helps with the proper hydration of both the intracellular and extracellular fluids in the body.
When the electrolytes in our bodies become out of balance, we may experience nervous system disorders such as dizziness, restless leg syndrome and other problems with muscles including our heart along with various other problems. Imbalances can be caused by excessive sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, eating disorders and environmental toxins as well as artificial flavors and toxins in foods.
Our CHF #97 is a blend of calcium citrate, magnesium citrate, potassium citrate, manganese gluconate, glycine, sodium chloride and vitamin B6; all the needed components for good electrolyte balance. It is our hope that this formula will provide you with the most helpful and healthful electrolyte supplement you can find. We strove to make this an excellent supplement for athletic people.
